      Hero (BTN): $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q K
      6 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) 2 5 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $2.50, SB folds

      $4.50 pot ($0.20 rake)
      Final Board: 2 5 5
      SB mucked and lost (-$2 net)
      Hero mucked Q K and won $4.30 ($2.30 net)

      pre im opening 3x cause SB is fish 80/0, 5 hands. On this flop I was about to cbet for value, protection and cause I did want to pick up the pot and I also did not want to check behind and call his turn bet, cause I didnt know if he bets blufs twice or nly once (if he bluffs at all).
      Do you think that his donk should change anything in plan? Because of his size i assumed it is not, so I made a bet like there were no donk at all.
      One more thing: do you think that such boards are good to cb bluff HU with unknown fish?
      Or maybe in this structure it should be double barrel with hands without equity, cause this guy can call flop with even 69, but he will fold it on the turn?

      I do angry that against a minbet you can very often raise as if he checked. Now, don't get me wrong, it's not exactly as a check but when you have 2 overs as equity or more, you definitely have enough equity to bluff raise. Minbets are on average weak enough to raise vs them.

      Yes, I think these boards are good to cbet with all your range against an uknown. They should fold often enough on it as a default.

      Double barreling is usually not that good. Once you get called (because they fold to cbets so often) you can expect them to have too good of a range to alwyas double barrel. That said, barreling with some equity is fine because you need less equity when you can hit quite a few outs.
